  • STEAM Academy In-Person and Remote Learning Plan

    Fayette County Public Schools and STEAM Academy are preparing to offer in-person instruction for students whose families choose to send their children back to campus and
    remote instruction for families who choose to keep their children at home. While plans are being made with an eye toward January 2021, students will only return to campus if it is safe to do so.

    In collaboration with families and employees, each school has developed a school-specific plan in consultation with its School-Based Decision Making Council, aligned to the state’s “Guidance on Safety Expectations and Best Practices for Kentucky Schools (K-12), (Appendix A) and Fayette County Public Schools procedures.
